Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

After looking around more at Rocky Mountain's tire selection, I decided to take a shot at the Shinko sr241 trials tire in the 3.5x19 size. It just barely fits! As with the scorpion, it's significantly taller than the stock tire and with the 58 tooth sprocket, it feels about the same it did stock, so...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I've got hyde racing engine guards/skid plates on my gas bikes and prefer them over aluminum. They are more durable and also to a better job of absorbing and distributing impact forces. Hopefully someone will make something similar for the sur-ron. I got home from travelling to some goodies waiting...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Could you take another pic of the bike, straight ahead with the steering wheel strait? Those hand guards looks like they are made for giants, probably camera angle that causes that. I agree, they are for a full sized bike and look a little large. However, i'm willing to sacrifice some looks for not...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Pretty hard to find any ride reports for this bike in an off-road setting where it’s really getting thrashed pretty hard. Watching the Luna guys trying to pop wheelies in their parking lot, you can tell the bike has quite a bit of power but I have no idea what it would be like to ride on serious te...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

As far as legalizing a sur-ron in the US, if your state doesn't require vehicles to be registered in state, you can register it in Vermont, all they require is a bill of sale or receipt. I believe there are other states (NV maybe?) that will do this also. Here in PA, they require vehicles to be regi...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Can anyone post a picture or video on how to disconnect the brake cut off switch, I’m used to wheelie on normal bikes and motorbikes and this feature really pisses me off. I haven't done it myself; but you just unplug the wires going to the break levers. Thanks I will give a try... if anyone knows ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Whoa! Just out of curiosity, how long does the battery last with that amount of output? I did a few mods so far. Higher bars (old 1 1/8" moto bars, had to shim to get them to work), Cheapo hand guards and disconnected the brake cut-off switches. https://i.imgur.com/iGqvIjf.jpg Thinking down the road...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Like Enginepy, I also got mine yesterday that I had ordered from the pre-order sale. I'm a long time off-road dirt bike guy and was considering an Alta, but it's weight and range (an price!!!) gave me enough pause to be patient for a few more years until they are more in line with the gas bikes. So ...
